One of the comments on yesterday’s post was that we could have a game design competition around any 30th anniversary edition of Halji. Thanks to edenchanges for that suggestion. I’ve been looking at competitions to enter myself, as a sort of design equivalent to speed drawing and don’t know why I didn’t think of it myself. Great idea.
Will we actually run a competition? Still undecided. Chris is travelling between the UK and Japan at present, so I’ll have a chat with him when he’s settled in one place again.
What do you think? Would anyone be interested?
Well I would have time during summer…
If competition was held, would you give original rules for all competitors to serve as a basis or would you only show game components and give the premise of the game?
All competitors would need the rules as a starting point, I think, as well as a full components list.
Yeah. Goes without saying.
I’d certainly be interested, I’d love to break into the game design industry!
I’m having a Skype with Chris on sunday, and we’ll decide then. Already had a long email discussion about the practicalities of running a competition. Interesting stuff 🙂
